Shoe Background Image


Shoe Appeal

Shoes are one of the tools that help dancers make astonishing, athletic and beautiful art. Creating a new ballet like Hansel & Gretel is an exciting challenge and you can help Scottish Ballet produce this new work by helping us buy new shoes.

Scottish Ballet's dancers go through thousands of pairs of bespoke shoes each year, from pointe shoes to flats, boots to character shoes. With your support, Scottish Ballet will purchase the dancer's shoes that bring ballets to life and give them the most vital tool of their costume. Please will you help create the magic of a new ballet by making a donation today?
